Oh no! There must be a black market for craft stuff! Someone broke into my crapt storage room. Seriously, why on earth would anyone break in and trash this room? What could possibly be so valuable on the black market?
Let’s take a look at the usual suspects:
Don’t they look suspicious?
Let’s take a better look at the scene of the crime…
This is the porch/room in question. Circa 1984 That is jamie with her best friend Bugar. Sometime in the 90’s the porch was enclosed for a hot tub. Then for a few years it was used as a sun porch with some wicker furniture pieces.
I adjusted the shelves to fit my needs, and used peg hooks on the end to hold items like paint brushes. However—there is one major problem with this storage area. It is cold in the winter and hot in the summer. It is basically an enclosed porch.
This is how it looked recently. If you remember—in January I started a new “plan” to spend 10 minutes a day cleaning out clutter. I worked really hard for the first 2-3 weeks of January doing the challenge with Peter on Facebook (around the house). Then I slacked off. Fell off the wagon so to speak. Then March rolled around, and I got pretty busy with Etsy orders and quickly realized I needed to take this space back! So, because it was so overwhelming I started slow with 10 minutes here and there. After a week or so of that, I started spending a little more time in there each session.
I’m still putting some finishing touches on this craft room. I was working on it when I got the call about going to Las Vegas….so I got a little distracted. I think the secret is to have the proper storage solutions. stay tuned . . .
Please tell me I’m not alone, have you ever let your craft space get this bad? How do you keep your space under control?
